[Update: Yu (via Twitter) has announced that the forthcoming - 'Project Caesar'- smartphone will be named Yuphoria. This is a surprise to many as most of hints released by YU all through the day had indicated Yuknight to win the battle of the names.]
On 31 March, Micromax YU began the #YUNameIt contest, a promotional campaign to give their esteemed fans an opportunity to name the upcoming smartphone aka Project Caesar. Now the wait is almost over as the company is ready to reveal the device's name soon.
Early this week, YU picked the top five names -- Yuknight, Yunicorn, Yuphoria, Yunity and Youth among the 1 lakh entries. And after three days of online voting, the company is ready with the winning name.
Today (8 April), YU (via Twitter) began dropping a series of cryptic hints:
Hint 1: Two dots make me, I'm a (.- ) code. Who am i?
Hint 2: It's an honorary vowel. What is it?
Hint 3: The point where one road ends and two begin. Tell us what is it?
Hint 4: A silent me in night, is an old warrior of might. Who am I?
Hint 5: You may confuse me with a numeral. Who am I?
Hint 6: I am the opposite of me! What do you think i am?
Hint 7: Sometimes I may sound like an S, sometimes I may sound like a K. What am I?
Popular replies from fans indicate that YU may name the new phone aka Project Caesar as – "Yuknight".
If we analyze the hint-3 – "The point where one road ends and two begin" - little deeper, it does point to two popular names Yunity and Yuknight (it does sound like unite).
Furthermore, the company's hint-4 – "A silent me in night, is an old warrior of might. Who am i I?"- almost gives away the name away -- Yuknight.
Micromax YU is playing tricks on fans and going by the response on Twitter, they seem to be enjoying every bit of the attention.
As of now, the company is yet to officially announce the final name for Project Caesar smartphone. We will bring you more details as it develops.
